One of the great features about the Ruby on Rails Model View Controller (MVC) architecture is the concept of generators which can quickly create the mvc layers.
The Joomla! 1.5 framework is now using an MVC by choice architectre, however the generators are still missing. Joomla! 1.5 is no-longer just a Content Management System, it is a great framework for building all kinds of web applications with a CMS edge.
My friend and business associate Arash from PeerGlobe technology has written an awesome tutorial to help you Build Joomla! MVCs the Ruby on Rails Style.
